and concern for both the moderator and president obama, how do these policies benefit you and why have you availed yourself of every imaginable deduction while you're so -- allegedly so concerned about our deficit. >> today the obama campaign is shifting its strategy on how to deal with romney's proposal to explain which tax deductions he will eliminate. rather than raul romney out, the president will, quote, warn middle class voters of the worst and goad the republican nominee into proving him wrong. it's a lose/lose proposition for romney because any answer will invite further criticism. that's my point, in goading him into saying what deductions he would get rid of, he'll either not say, which will make him look like he's hiding out during the debate with jim lehrer saying tell us, tell us, tell us, he's saying no, no, no or he's beginning to tease and show some leg and say i'm think being something to do with the home mortgage thing or a charitable cap or something less on state and local. in any case they will go through the roof, the voters, the next day and the headline writers. >>
